my first show
Yeah I was working at the High Society Restaurant on Haight St walked outside and heard about the show. I grabbed a buddy telling him I'd spring for his ticket headed on down to Winter land like Dane said the show started out pretty sloppy but the acid started kicking in the first act had just gone off by the time Box of Rain started I knew I was home!!! Having bought American Beauty back in Arkansas in 1970 turned into my favorite album. Anyway The Other One was magical the show stayed that way to the end, walking outside still peaking on the acid ( Was some Owsley Blue Krishna) the city looked beautiful and intense if I remember correctly the fog had started coming in. I knew the worm had turned, was a great show!!

Grateful, Stills, Nash & Dead
12-12-72...12 hours in a day, 12 hours at night, 12 months in a year, 12 astrological houses, 12 tones in western music, 12 letters in Grateful Dead. The way this show sounds, they like the 12th day of the 12th month also! This may be the BEST SINGING from the entire group at one time that I have heard. I mean, most times I see 5 star reviews I understand that there will be out of tune singing from any number of the band and that is a given. Well, they are spot on during this show! I was always left scratching my head wondering where Bob was going with the screams in Sugar Magnolia... this show executes his intentions. Even Donna, I said, EVEN DONNA is in tune, on time and perfectly mixed! Orion and his Sagittarius stars were certainly aligned on this night. The Bird Song SOARS, absolutely one of the best I've heard, if not THE best. Same with most of the set, especially Playin'. This is a solid 5 star show that would be 5 to the 5th power if we could hear Phil's bass interaction better. So if one of you audio wizards would kindly bump the bass up to 11 we may be in the rarified air of top 10% of all shows (in my humble opinion).
